BACKGROUND Lung transplantation from adults to infants or small children is still challenging because of concerns related to size disparity. Peripheral lung volume reduction for size disparity in cadaveric donor lung transplantation has been widely performed; however, little is known about the efficacy and the functional outcomes of downsizing the implanted(More)
A mediastinal Mullerian cyst was initially reported as a new category of congenital cyst by Hattori, et al. in 2005. We treated a 53-year-old female referred to us with a posterior mediastinal tumor found at the Th5 prevertebral level by chest-computed tomography during a medical check-up. She had a history of mediastinal teratoma, which was removed at the(More)
The validity of our proposed lobe-specific regional lymph node stations (LSRLNS) was evaluated as a method for navigation during lymphadenectomy in patients with early stage non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). A total of 725 NSCLC patients with c-T2N1M0 or less extensive disease who had undergone a curative operation with complete mediastinal lymph node(More)
PURPOSE Several small studies have reported that acute exacerbation (AE) of idiopathic interstitial pneumonia (IIP) can occur after lung resection for patients with non-small cell lung cancer, though the incidence rate is unclear. METHODS We examined our institutional data and performed a search of the MEDLINE database for publications regarding AE of IIP(More)
OBJECTIVES Ischemia-reperfusion injury after lung transplantation is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. The activation of the transcription factor nuclear factor kappaB is central to the 2 important pathways that characterize ischemia-reperfusion injury, namely the inflammatory response and apoptosis. The purpose of this study was to(More)
We report a case with lung cancer during pregnancy, which has a very poor prognosis.A 34-year old female at 30 weeks of pregnancy came to us with a cough and right lower chest pain. Chest computed tomography revealed a mass in the right lower lung lobe and the diagnosis of adenocarcinoma cT2aN1M0 was made. We performed a right sleeve pneumonectomy, as the(More)
Mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma arising from the thymus is extremely rare. We present a case of a 23-year-old woman with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) who was diagnosed with thymic MALT lymphoma. In 2004, she was diagnosed with a mediastinal tumor on chest radiography during medical follow up for SLE. An anterior mediastinal tumor(More)
Few have reported a concomitant malignant neoplasm with immunoglobulin G4 (IgG4)-related diseases. We describe a case of lung cancer and gastric cancer accompanied with IgG4-related disease. A 78-year-old man had an area of ground-glass opacity with central collapse in right upper lobe and a gastric cancer. The patient underwent a right upper lobectomy(More)
Because pulmonary metastasis is considered to be systemic spread of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), indication of pulmonary resection as a treatment for it is not well-described. We retrospectively reviewed clinical records of the patients who underwent pulmonary resection for metastases from HCC in our hospital. Seven patients, 6 men, 1 woman, and the(More)
An 85-year-old male with superior sulcus tumor was referred to our hospital complaining right brachial pain and omalgia. Chest computed tomography showed right apical lung tumor involving the 1st rib, and bronchoscopy established a diagnosis of squamous cell carcinoma, cT3NOM0. After concurrent chemoradiotherapy [cisplatin (CDDP) + 60 Gy], functional(More)
